Behind the TV Scenes: Gary Schreier

Gary Schreier

This summer, we’re putting a spotlight on the industry’s top producers; getting the inside story about their shows, how they got to where they are, and advice they have for future TV journalists.

For more than two decades, Gary Schreier has covered some of the biggest news and business stories in America and around the world. “I think it’s been an extraordinary 15 to 20 years,” says Schreier, who started at CNBC, followed by 16  years at Fox News and Fox Business. Now, back at CNBC as EP of “Closing Bell,” Schreier reflects on a wide-ranging career.

TVNewser: You’ve produced for general news and business news. How have you approached producing for the different types?

Schreier: Production is never just production. You always want to think about it hard and how to make the story bigger on television than it would be if you were reading it in print — digitally, online, or a newspaper — or on radio certainly. I think sometimes the difference between general news and business news is general news can lend itself where the production isn’t as important; the story itself can be so compelling, and the pictures so compelling that it just presents itself. Where as business news, say even during a financial crisis, you need to think harder on how to represent things. Business news can tend to be a lot of numbers, a lot of statistics, and you need to break those down and present them in a form that’s much more acceptable to the people. So, it’s a little more challenging, but I find it fun too. It makes you think harder, it makes you work a little harder, and if you can distill something that’s hard to understand with a lot of numbers and stats and bring it down to a level where people kind of crystallize it and get it and helps them make a good, informed decision for their life, and for their money, and for their finances, it’s kind of rewarding.

  • Jake Tapper talks about his morning routine with Bon Appetit: “As soon as I wake up, I read my email to see what news developed overnight. Then I go to Twitter and do the same thing, see what’s happened in the rest of the world. Finally, I go to Facebook to get the developments on my friend’s lives. And then I get out of bed. This is all before coffee.”

Maria Bartiromo is Trying to ‘Keep it Real’

MariaBartiromo304Six months after her Fox Business debut, Maria Bartiromo is focusing on the viewer. Speaking to Tribune TV Week, she explains giving the viewer what they want while also staying true to herself is key.

“The viewer is so smart,” she says. “They see right through it. If you’re trying to be someone you’re not, forget it. You’re going to be bounced off. It’s so important to be authentic and to be yourself. “It may be that someone says, ‘You know what, I don’t agree with that woman, but I like her because she’s actually telling me what she thinks. She’s herself, and I like it because she keeps it real.’ “So that’s what I’m trying to do, just to keep it real.”

Earlier this year, we went behind the scenes at Bartiromo’s Fox News/Fox Business shows. Watch after the jump.

“CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley does a Q+A with The Hill:

Pelley304What did you want to be when you were a kid? An astronaut, oh, without question. That was what it was all about when I was growing up in the mid-’60s. … I would write NASA letters and they would send me back 8-by-10-inch color glossies of the astronauts that were flying, and I built model rockets and replicas of the rockets that we were flying. And I’ll never forget the night Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon in 1969. I shot pictures of it off our television screen watching Walter Cronkite do the coverage. I guess that was my introduction to journalism.

FBN anchor Maria Bartiromo talks to the Chicago Tribune about her favorite places to travel:

maria bartiromoQ. What’s a nice, low-key trip for you?

A. My husband and I go to Tucson, Arizona, and go to the Santa Catalina Mountains and hike. I love putting on my hiking boots and going into the wilderness. It takes me away and clears my head and helps me not be so busy and stressed. It’s so nice to make time to be in nature. That’s probably my favorite type of trip.

Maria Bartiromo Returns to NYSE for Summer Fridays: ‘We Wanted to Kick it Up a Little’

maria bartiromoStarting this morning, and every Friday for the rest of the summer, Maria Bartiromo will anchor her Fox Business show from outside the NYSE.

“Summer Fridays are sometimes lighter days. It’s just a nice change of pace to go outside and go downtown,” Bartiromo tells TVNewser. “I love my set and I love being at the Fox headquarters, which is so convenient for guests, but I figured because we’re in the summertime, we wanted to kick it up a little and do something different.”

Bartiromo, who joined FBN from CNBC in in January, has a long history at the NYSE: in addition to being the first reporter to broadcast live from the floor, her CNBC show was broadcast there. One of the reasons to return, she says, is to “reconnect with people” and Wall Street sources.

“I have so many friends there. I did go down once when I first started [at FBN],” she says. “It was so nice because the guys on the floor gave me such a beautiful welcome, and I really felt great about it.” Read more

Shep Smith: ‘The Boss Tried to Buy the CNN’

On “Shepard Smith Reporting” this afternoon, Smith and Maria Bartiromo waded into the major media news of the day that Fox News’ parent company, 21st Century Fox, made an $80 billion offer last month to buy Time Warner, the parent company of CNN.

Saying she would “not be betting against Rupert” (and also noting she has no insider information), Bartiromo said she suspects Murdoch will come back with a higher bid that the Time Warner shareholders will ultimately accept. Under such a deal, 21st Century Fox would sell CNN to appease regulators — “beat ‘em, buy ‘em, sell ‘em,” as Smith described it. Under that scenario, Bartiromo says she sees CBS as a likely bidder for CNN.

“You could just repeat Anthony Bourdain, ‘The Sixties’ and ‘Forensic Files’ 24 hours a day on a loop! It’s gonna be great,” Smith said. Watch the video, via J$P:
